Receiving my Financial Aid

Once you have accepted your awards and completed all requirements, your financial aid will disburse to your student account. Aid is typically disbursed ten days prior to the start of the term.

If your aid is more than your semester charges, you may receive the excess in the form of a refund check from the Office of Student Accounts. Refund checks are typically processed on the first day of the term. Your check will be mailed to your permanent home address. You may set up direct deposit or another refund address through Student Accounts.

There are some common issues that may prevent aid from disbursing to your account:

  • You have not completed entrance counseling or signed your MPN (Master Promissory Note) at
  • Your parent has not signed the PLUS Loan MPN at
  • Your enrolled hours do not meet the requirements of your aid.
